Dominican Monastery

Bol, Croatia

In at the place in Bol where once was a bishop's palace today is the Dominican Monastery. It was built in 1475 and very close to it is a small church of Our Lady of Mercy. The most precious heritage of both monastery and church is the renaissance painting of Madonna and Child with Saints.

One of the hidden gems of the Adriatic. Great beach, nice archaeological museum, great chapel.

Museum is nice, but a bit underwhelming as it’s small and has no air conditioning (during July and August you will be sweating inside). Nice church

Quite simple and small monastery. Worth of visiting once. The museum part is the artefacts there are amazing and really historical.

Wieskirche

The Pilgrimage Church of Wies (Wieskirche) is an oval rococo church, designed in the late 1740s by Dominikus Zimmermann. It is located in the foothills of the Alps in the municipality of Steingaden.

The sanctuary of Wies is a pilgrimage church extraordinarily well-preserved in the beautiful setting of an Alpine valley, and is a perfect masterpiece of Rococo art and creative genius, as well as an exceptional testimony to a civilization that has disappeared.

The hamlet of Wies, in 1738, is said to have been the setting of a miracle in which tears were seen on a simple wooden figure of Christ mounted on a column that was no longer venerated by the Premonstratensian monks of the Abbey. A wooden chapel constructed in the fields housed the miraculous statue for some time. However, pilgrims from Germany, Austria, Bohemia, and even Italy became so numerous that the Abbot of the Premonstratensians of Steingaden decided to construct a splendid sanctuary.
